Does anyone know the torque specs for the front and rear subframe for the fk7? I wish I had looked it up when I had subscription to the honda service express site.

I am about to install the rear end rigid collars any advice before I start. When I installed the front end I just used a floor jack to slowly lower the front subframe just enough to add the collars.
Did you just take off all the bolts at one time or did you support the rear subframe ?

I found that the rears were harder to line up than the fronts. I loosened all of them, but didn't remove them completely from their sockets, that way the subframe won't completely fall down, but had enough space to place the collars in. Lots of shifting subframe, tightening a bit, shifting subframe again to have it seat all the way back in. It was a PITA.
